Can Pioneer cycle computers be charged from an external battery? Can the computer be used while charging?
Yes. Both the SGX-CA900 and SGX-CA500 can be charged from any standard USB power source at 5V/500mA.
Mobile type Batteries may also be used; ensure that the output voltage is 5V, and the output current is capable of supplying 500mA.
Both the SGX-CA900 and SGX-CA500 are fully functional while charging but riding while charging is not recommended for safety reasons. Also, since the USB socket is exposed when charging (the cover is not closed), the waterproofing of the device can no longer be guaranteed.
